Osun: Lagos PDP congratulates Adeleke, urges good governance

By Adeyemi Adeleye, Lagos.


The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, on Sunday congratulated Sen. Ademola Adeleke on his swearing-in as the governor of Osun.


The party, in a statement issued by its State Publicity Secretary, Mr Hakeem Amode, said that Adeleke’s swearing-in had bestowed on him greater responsibilities to drive the PDP developmental agenda.


Amode said that Adeleke’s victory at the polls was an evidence of his past achievements in his political career, urging him to promote good governance in the state.


“The leadership of the Lagos State PDP and our gubernatorial candidate, Dr Abdul-Azeez  Adediran-JANDOR, and members of our party heartily rejoice with Adeleke on his election and swearing in as the governor of Osun – ‘the State of the Living Spring’.


“We urge you to exalt the good governance, synonymous with our party, for the benefit of the people of Osun.


“The PDP remains resolved to recover, revive and reset Nigeria toward accelerated development in all spheres,” he said.


Amode said that the party believed that Adeleke’s inauguration and the 2023 elections were up at a time the people of South-West geopolitical zone needed to have a re-focus on winning elections for the purpose of good governance.


He stressed that Lagos State and Osun State PDP should, therefore, be partners.


“We pray that God will grant you the divine wisdom, as you join hands with other patriotic leaders and executives to lead the people of Osun on the right path of growth in the years ahead, to impact positively on the lives of humanity,” he said.


Gov. Adeleke, on Sunday, took over from ex-Gov. Gboyega Oyetola, who lost his re-election bid during the July 16 governorship election.
